Progreso (Merida), Mexico - BRING PESOS!!! Go to you bank and convert your money, youll save so much! You will always be ripped off paying american! This is a great place to just get off the boat, take the shuttle to the end of the pier, and hang out. I live on the texas border of mexico and this place reminds me of what mexico used to be. Everything is WAY cheaper here than Cozumel! So dont book an excursion here, just get out and shop. If you like souvenirs you dont need to ride the shuttle, there are alot of shops right off the boat. If you wanna hang out, drink, find cooler souvenirs, or go to a beach thats free, take the free shuttle(2 minute ride).
Cozumel, Mexico - BRING PESOS!! This is a serious rip off spot if youre using american. The shops SUCK!! Everything is way too expensive in american. The excursions are awesome though. We did the powerboat excursion. Flying through beautiful multicolored waters in a 2 seat mini speedboat was so much fun.
